Love Festivals guide :
January : Celtic festival of Brighid, The White Goddess. Celebrate January by putting white sheets on the bed, white flowers in your home, dolls made from white ribbon and welcome in Brighid to spread her luck. Newly weds do this to promote a healthy, long-lasting marriage.
February : St. Valentines Day, Roman festival of Lupercalia. Valentine got named after this festival after falling in love with his jailer's daughter and writing her a letter before he was sentenced to death signed, 'Your Valentine', and so arose the tradition for exchanging love tokens. Lupercalia is celebrated all week from the 12th even though Valentines Day is only celebrated on the 14th.
March : Matronolia, Goddess of women. Celebrate this day by empowering yourself on 1st March with feminine time and get to know yourself, pamper yourself and love yourself surrounded by women - no men!
April : Veneralia, Venus festival. Celebrate your sexuality to the Goddess of love on April 1st. Go naked (no make-up if you can't go nude), embrace your blemishes and fat folds and ask Venus to show only your beauty to men.
May : Beltane, Sacred Marriage day. This is the month to let go of all your fears and hang ups so you can be truly seen and enjoy yourself in the grace of Flora, Goddess of blossoming plants! Roll in the hay, drink wine, have fun. This goes on until mid-May. Karma's wheel stops turning in Beltane for a short while so enjoy activity without consequences (within reason!). Pan married Gaia on Beltane so ask the Horned God to send you some sexy treats.
June : Midsummer Day, Festival of Love. Enjoy much love in the month of June. More so than in February as God Juno plays the role of cupid during this time.
July : Opet, Honour Amun Day. The Egyptian twin-flames Amun & Mut along with their child Khons ensures that Opet is used for reconnecting loved ones. Pray to Amun in July and state who you would like to re-connect with.
August : Lammes, Day Of Nature. This is the day of the grain harvest, 1st August, and it's stated that one must honour the man to save the crops and Earth from dying. Pay homage to the men in your life and feed them as a way to a man's heart is through his stomach.
September - Demeter, Week of Separation and Strength. Use this first week of September to clear out pain of separation from a loved one and gather strength to cope with the pain. Great love comes from knowing great pain.
October - Diwali, Indian Festival of Light. This goes on for five days. It's sacred to the Hindu Goddess Lakshmi. She focuses on love. Lighting your home with candles will attract her to your door, where she will grant you your desires as long as you help her. Use new lamps, not old, so she can help lost souls find their way home in the light.
November : Isis, Egyptian Festival of Isis. Queen of life, Isis, is a twin flame to Osiris, king of death. Use this month to get over your fear of losing a loved one and turning that fear into hope.
December : Virgin Mary Month, Festival Of Light. This is a time we should all come together and appreciate one another. Virgins around this time will appear more attractive and will find a suitable mate. Children born in this month are said to be born from pure light and love.
Everyday should be a celebration of love don't you think?

The nature of ego. The most slippery thing to catch hold of, almost like a wet snake and the most common thing in the world. The paradox about the ego is that, it exists yet it doesn't. It exists because of our identity to ourselves. People maybe spiritualistic ,materialistic ,religious or a christian, hindu, muslim and we prop ourselves for belonging to something.What it does that it gives more identity to ourselves .The identity maybe of that of the world or the 'other-world' but both are the same. Our so-called 'saints' are nothing other than a person with the ego of the 'other-world'. It is most common that our saints might have a repressed ego in themselves.
The real man without ego is neither egoistic nor humble. He/She is just simply themselves. Their identification with the body is lost such that they are neither a male or a female. This is what jesus meant when he said "to see the kindom of god, your two eyes must become one"(not the exact quote). He is simply saying that our inner polarities,divisions and finally our inner male and female should dissappear into each other that you are neither male or female and becomes simply a witnessing consciousness.
Now think about it, what is it the humbleness that our priest goes on teaching us. He is telling us to repress our thoughts about our false identity (with ourselves) with our body, religion, spirituality, money, name, educational qualifications.. So, that you will be treated in the other world with somany wonderful things. Do not fall into that trap. But be compassionate toward him, he has been unconsciously brainwashed by their teachers that have been brainwasshing themselves and others for years.
The ego exists not. The ego is simply a bundle of thought about our false identity. And thoughts are simply another version of the dreams that we see during sleep. It is when you wake up that you realize all these things were just a dream. So the middle way in going beyond the ego is to know that neither repressing nor expressing won't help in overcoming it. It is to know our true nature beyond our bodies(physical, astral, all other 'bodies').
